The University of Virginia Health System Clinical Staff Office exists to protect the patients and the reputation of the health care institution. The Clinical Staff Office provides an efficient and thorough process for verifying the credentialing and privileges of clinical staff practitioners.  The Clinical Staff Office also serves as a resource to the clinical staff regarding the Bylaws of the Clinical Staff of the Medical Center and Standing Committees of the Clinical Staff.   The Clinical Staff Office is located on the 4th Floor of McKim Hall (Rooms 4050, 4048, 4052).  The office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Credentialing is the process by which a private association, organization, or governmental agency, after initial and periodic evaluations, grants recognition to an individual or organization that has met certain established criteria.  The review process includes a series of activities designed to collect relevant data that will serve as the basis for decisions regarding appointments and reappointments to the clinical staff, as well as delineation of clinical privileges based on the Bylaws of the Clinical Staff of the University of Virginia Medical Center and the Clinical Staff Credentialing and Privileging Manual and Resource Guide.

Credentials Committee

All decisions relating to clinical staff appointments and reappointments, the granting of clinical privileges, and modification of medical staff status and/or clinical privileges are the responsibility of the Credentials Committee on behalf of the Clinical Staff Executive Committee and approved by the Medical Center Operating Board.
